The cafe attached here does a lovely selection of cakes and also nice and varied hot food (today there were lamb koftas and a variety of salads.) There is a permanent historical exhibition about the history of Anglesey, rotating art exhibits and a gift shop featuring local produce and craft items from locals.
I love coming here, they change the displays quite often so there's always something new to look at! It's a great place for kids too as there is a section where they can interact and touch certain things! I must admit I sometimes just come for a coffee as I like the atmosphere. The little gift shop is great too and not that expensive, a brilliant chance to get your self some hand crafted Jewelry and arty stuff from local crafters!!! It's free BONUS!!
All round excellent. With a great cafe too.
